ALONZO “HAMBURGER” JONES X MARTIN LAWRENCE X BERNIE MAC
One of the best examples of Peak Blackness ever. A real murderer’s row.
"Hamburger" plays the room like a seasoned vet. He roasts a few audience members, then hits black church, a Janet Jackson concert, and finishes with a near-ethering of MC Hammer. Bear in mind, this is DEF COMEDY JAM and the man doesn’t swear once.
Martin plays a quality point guard role and not only does he set the crowd up for Bernie to come in and body everything, he damn near throws an alley-oop.
What follows next is one of the pinnacle moments in Black American history. From Bernie’s outfit to the dance breaks to “Man, I pull it out right now, this whole room’ll get dark!!”.
Watch it. Laugh. Go get your face airbrushed on a pair of stonewashed jeans.
